(79) Sherlock Holmes is an enjoyable if not stimulating take on the iconic literary detective. While Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law may not play Doyle’s own Holmes and Watson, they certainly create strong versions of those characters. More than clever enough for a Christmas action flick, the film falls somewhat short as a Guy Ritchie cockney crime vehicle. The holiday masses will be happy with Holmes, although more savvy mystery fans may be disappointed with the clumsily constructed plot.
